I misspelled my name during signup. How do I change it?

We can help you change the name on your account if it's misspelled or if you've legally changed your name. However, it is not possible to change the name on your account to another person's name.

To change your name, submit your request through our secure form. If you’re asked to submit documentation, it normally takes 3-5 business days for a review.
